Welcome to “Dave on ANON….” the floating leather shop & workshop onboard narrowboat  “Anon….”

( For those of you confused by the name, boaters often refer to other boaters by their first name and their boat name as we don’t often know, and don’t need to know their surname.)

All our leather is from approved certified sources from around the world, and includes cow hides, goat skins, pig skins and snake skins.

We have been cruising the canals of England & Wales on our narrow boat “ANON….” Since 1992, selling our leather work.

Our range of leather work has increased over the years from theOriginal leather windlass Holster or holder in use.  original windlass holster I made for myself , because I couldn’t find one that held my windlass secure and didn’t scratch the side of the boat when walking the gunwales.

More styles of windlass holsters were added, with a range of made to measure belts to match.

Our range of items now includes


    Dog ware

    Key Cases

    Shoulder bags

    Belt Bags

    Tote Bags

    Leather Trinket Trays



    Finger Rings


    Leather Vases

    Bottle holders

    Purses and wallets.

We don’t use any recycled leather or as it is more accurately called reconstituted leather as we feel that the process totally destroys the beauty of natural leather.
